    Charlie Rangel Found Guilty on 11 of 13 Ethics Violations


    A House ethics committee subpanel today found Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel guilty of 11 of the 13 charges of ethics violations against him.
    The panel, composed of four Democrats and four Republicans, emerged after private deliberation to announce their findings.

    "This has been a difficult assignment," committee chair Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said. "We have tried to act with fairness, led only by the facts and the law, and I believe we have accomplished that mission."

    The subpanel will now submit its findings to the full ethics committee, which will schedule a public hearing to determine the appropriate sanctions to take against the longtime New York representative. Whatever action they decide on during the sanctions hearing will then go to the full House of Representatives. The committee could go so far as to recommend expelling Rangel, but that would be unlikely. Other possible sanctions include a House vote deploring Rangel's conduct, a fine or a denial of privileges.

    The Rangel case is just racism. Look what they did to Adam Clayton Powell. You know Rangel's heart was in the right place. Besides, he needed the money.
